The Black Cat Analogy:


Religion has its place and philosophy is great. But science?

Science is awesome.

    I'm pro-flashlight, but the stated "problem" is one that only science can solve. In other words, the analogy doesn't hold for other disciplines because it's a scientific (material) one.

    Although the theology "solution" gave me a chuckle.

  6. True! Yet many people would like to apply the solution of religion or theology to issues that are scientific issues. It gave me a chuckle too, which was why I blogged it.
